Nixon Pinto is Stabbed to Death During Antelope Street Beef

Nixon Pint

A feud between rival groups in the area of Antelope Street Extension has resulted in the stabbing death of nineteen-year-old Nixon Pinto.  Sometime around six o’clock on Tuesday evening, Pinto and another man, identified as nineteen-year-old Jovi Hernandez, got into an altercation at the Lord Ridge Cemetery in the vicinity of Western Avenue.  Hernandez, a resident of Hattieville, reportedly produced an instrument with which he inflicted a single stab wound to the right side of Pinto’s chest.  By the time police arrived at the scene, the victim had already been transported to the K.H.M.H. where he had been pronounced dead on arrival.

“About six p.m., police visited the Karl Heusner Memorial whereupon arrival they observed the motionless body of a Hispanic male person with an apparent stab wound to the body.  The male person was not identified at the moment and what police gathered so far is that the male person was somewhere on the burial grounds where he had an altercation with another male person and as a result of that altercation, the male person suffered a stab wound to his body.  This morning at about eight a.m., the body was identified by a family member as that of a Honduran national Nixon Mata Pinto, eighteen-years-old of a New Road address.”
